I dig it. Very cool approach.

Yes - a definite remake, remodel rather than a retread of past glories a la Jeff Lynne's note for note ELO reconstruction. What did you make of that?

Have not heard the redone ELO. Seems a bit pointless, but I will say that as the years go on I tend to have more appreciation for Mr. Lynne (although more due to the ocmpany he keeps than anything else).

I agree Mr Lynne seems like a thoroughly decent guy and very much a musician's musician. I think he redid the ELO hits to correct some flaws that only he could hear - to my untutored ears the differences are negligible. On the other hand, Long Wave, his homage to songs from his youth is lovingly done and delightful.
